‘Run Home Chicago’ Aims to End Homelessness

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local NewsIt may be off-season for the Chicago Bears, but providing services for Chicago’s homeless is a 365 day a year challenge that will be in the spotlight at the inaugural “Run Home Chicago” run/walk taking place at Soldier Field on Chicago’s lakefront on Sunday, June 10. Start time for the 10K competitive-timed run and 5K run/walk is 8am. A kids’ dash takes place at 9:30 a.m.

Hosted by Chicago’s Primo Center for Women and Children, www.primocenter.org, Run Home Chicago benefits several local non-profit organizations that provide homeless Chicagoans with shelter, sustenance and services.

Run Home Chicago aims to end homelessness, an enormous mission because the numbers are rising. Last year Chicagoans without a roof over their heads increased five percent to 93,799 individuals, according to the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.
